Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, announces it is investigating potential securities claims on behalf of shareholders of Sanderson Farms, Inc. (NASDAQ: SAFM) resulting from allegations that Sanderson Farms may have issued materially misleading business information to the investing public.

On October 7, 2016, Pivotal Research downgraded Sanderson Farms's peer, Tyson Foods, to "sell" from "buy," citing concerns about a "powerfully convincing" class action against Tyson Foods, Sanderson Farms, and certain of Sanderson Farms' industry peers alleging price collusion in the broiler-chicken market. The class action complaint alleges, among other things, that beginning in 2008, Tyson Foods, Sanderson Farms, and several other companies colluded by sharing proprietary data and reducing production to support prices. On this news, shares of Sanderson Farms fell $4.03 per share or over 4% to close at $89.15 per share on October 7, 2016.

Rosen Law Firm is preparing a class action lawsuit to recover losses suffered by Sanderson Farms investors. If you purchased shares of Sanderson Farms on or before October 7, 2016, please visit the firm's website at http://www.rosenlegal.com/cases-966.html for more information.
